Blank Pages

Print this story

Staring at a page as white as a sheet,
As white as the ghost who enthralled them
and reeled them in too deep.
What is the fate that we shall all meet?
If all pages in books stay pure white, I surely shall weep.

With my ink and quill a quest I shall fulfil,
To fill all poems with dark or light,
Is a quest that will surely lead deep, deep into the night.
There will be many a fright, on this darkened eve.

I will make my mark on this world filled with dark,
I will ignite a spark,
A flower of fire will grow to my desire,
And words that have been conjured as if by magicians
shall be used once more.

Strolling players play little music;
but its fading beauty is still breathing.
Breathe in the sound that their instruments make,
You must take in as many ideas as you can.
Fill many blank pages with words, as many as possible.

Dream dark dreams with little light,
Focus on the mirror images,
The shadows on the walls,
Light may eat away dark in the end.

This cycle returns and starts with blank pages,
You must then push them to their limit,
Break them but reform them you must,
And trying will then form unity amongst light and dark.

Causing havoc is only necessary when preventing destruction,
Destroying cities full of the helpless and poor is unsatisfying to the soul.
Do what is right; for dark and for light.
Two nations will connect and cause a commotion worth having.

Wow, that was soo amazing

BookHugger:) on 24 March, 2020

Wow! That was just amazing! It reminds me of one of my favorite poems, "I Opened a Book" by Julia Donaldson. It perfectly embodies the journey that writing takes you on! That was beautiful; thank you so much!

I must say that poem is quite outanding, the pen, paper and your mind make a good trio. Maybe someday you will be an amazing author like Cornelia.

Baasma (say: BA-ZZ-MA) on 18 January, 2014

I am extremely inspired by your poem and you have a great talent for it! I'm not much of a poet myself but I know a good poem when I see one!

Lollypop on 31 December, 2014

Dear Isobel C. Yes yes, I agree. I prefer to write stories, too! I usually don't write poems, and how I see, they won't be such 'Amaziiiiing' like yours Lollypop

Isobel C. on 23 December, 2013

Dear Artemisia, Thank you! It was lovely talking with you as well, and I hope we can meet again on another one of our chats soon. As for my poem, your compliment was a very sweet one and I did have the 'Inkworld' in mind when I wrote it although I tried not to copy it but to instead, compliment it! Do you think that worked? -Isobel

Artemesia on 22 December, 2013

Hi Isobel! It was so nice chatting with you! I read this, I love it! I can see the Inkworld inspiration, but your own words as well. I loved it!! It sounded so good when I read it aloud!

Isobel C. on 6 December, 2013

Dear Mckennab, aww, thanks! As an aspiring writer that's an inspiring and uplifting piece to read. Do you have any favourite authors? -Isobel C.

Isobel C. on 6 December, 2013

Dear Lollypop, Very pleased to read such a splendid note. It was 'Amaziiiiiiing' to see! Personally I prefer to write stories, but both require the same amount of concentration, time, etc. What about you? -Isobel C.

Isobel C. on 6 December, 2013

Dear Isabel, Hey! We are nearly name-twins. Yet another thank you. I am still writing and I'm sure that if you pick up a pencil and a sheet of paper (or just create a Word Document on your laptop and have your keyboard at the ready) then you too could write as well (if not better) than me. -Isobel C.

Isobel C. on 6 December, 2013

Dear Crystal Gomes, sorry for taking so long to respond to your lovely comment, but thank you! -Isobel C.

Mckennah on 20 November, 2013

You drew me in right away, and your use of words is extraordinary. This poem basically defines what most writer's do and what they wish to do.

Lollypop on 11 November, 2013

Amaziiiiiiiiing You did really good work Do you prefer to write poems or to write storys? Lollypop (Greetings from Germany )

Isabel on 30 October, 2013

That was amazing. I wish I could write like that. Keep writing.

Crystal Gomes on 29 October, 2013

"I will ignite a spark..... ."It is just so inspiring.

Isobel C. on 25 August, 2013

Dear Cassie, thank you! I originally wrote it for a competition I entered, but I didn't get anywhere near the top. I'm currently working on a dystopian-future novel, and the beginnings of a faery-fantasy book, but I have lots of other poems I could send in as well. -Isobel

Isobel C. on 25 August, 2013

Dear Winston, Thanks! Looking forward to seeing some more of your poems too. Can't wait until the next Writing House Chat! The new website looks great, doesn't it? -Isobel
